Certificate in Business & Life Coaching – Accredited Certificate in Coach Training (ACCT)
– Live – Interactive – Online
An Award-Winning Internationally Recognised Accredited Coach Training Programme. A 9-day comprehensive training giving you the tools, models and the confidence to practice as a coach. An accredited coach training course incorporating the NLP Foundation Diploma will provide you with all the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to build a vibrant Coaching Practice to help people make lasting change.
An experienced coach provides support, structure and encouragement to help their clients fulfil their true potential, make the most of their lives and move forward in the areas which they want to change, for example, their relationships, careers, fitness, work-life balance and self-confidence.
By observation, listening and questioning, a coach explores their client’s current situation, values and beliefs. They work with them to find ways in which they might achieve their aims and help them to set appropriate goals in their personal lives or in their career.
By remaining supportive and non-judgmental, coaches encourage clients to maintain motivation, commitment and to find ways of overcoming barriers and setbacks in their personal and professional lives.
So, the course is structured in the following way: once registered you will have access to our pre-study content, we call this training content “Foundational Learning” – it will give you a solid overview of the world of both NLP and Coaching and get you in the right mindset and ready for the live training.
Then, we will have our Meet & Greet event before the first full days training, then the 6 days of live training begins (Saturdays and Sundays) — after each weekends training there is a follow up Tutor call mid week (in the evening) to answer questions and practice the coaching and NLP approaches and models that you will be learning. Lastly, there is a break as you complete the required assignments and then a practical assessment day.
This Award-Winning training will provide you with all the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to build a Life Coaching Practice that fits in with your current working or home life and start to build a brand new business for yourself.
